Jason Kelce insists he’s not out for Super Bowl revenge against brother Travis and the Kansas City Chiefs when his Philadelphia Eagles team go to Arrowhead on Monday night.
The blockbuster week 11 showdown between the NFL’s two best teams comes just nine months after they met in Super Bowl LVII in Arizona.
Travis and the Chiefs were victorious 38-35 that night but much of the pre-game hype surrounded the battle of the brothers.
Their stardom has only increased since thanks to Travis’ relationship with pop superstar Taylor Swift and their hit podcast New Heights.
I’m motivated to win the game. I don’t need the Super Bowl [loss] to motivate me to beat my brother, or [his former coach] Andy Reid,’ said Kelce.
‘I’ve never beaten them in my career. I’m more motivated maybe by that.
‘I don’t buy into Super Bowl revenge games. Each season is different . This team is not the same, that team is not the same.
‘Nothing that happens on Monday night is going to at all change or make anything different about what happened last year.’
Everything the Kelces touch is turning to gold at the moment. Their Christmas song reached No. 1 on the iTunes charts just a day after it was released and Jason appeared on the cover of People Magazine as a contender for Sexiest Man Alive.
‘It’s been a whirlwind. It kind of started last year with the podcast and it’s continually built up more and more from the Super Bowl and my brother’s love life and People magazine,’ Jason added.
‘It’s continued to get more and more and you just kind of take it one day at a time, I think you try and stay grounded with it, you try and be realistic about it and you try to be the same person you are.
